After having embodied numerous heroines in her various recital albums, Sandrine Piau now embodies the powerful and wounded women depicted by Handel. "The wings of desire will have burned too quickly for these magicians who, like Icarus, fell from their pedestal due to the complete disrespect of their flight", explains the French soprano who admits to being particularly attracted to these "magnificent losers".

The enchantresses on this album form a multifaceted female portrait. On the eve of the new lockdown in the autumn of 2020, Jérôme Correas and his musicians of the Paladins orchestra were racing against time to bring this new recording to life. It was performed at the Théâtre de Poissy, near Paris, the very place where Sandrine Piau recorded her very first recital.

These virtuoso, aggressive, tender and moving arias by one of the great masters of opera present us with the tearful expressions of women. This particularly intense rite of passage brings together characters as different as Adelaide, Cleopatra, Lucrezia, Alcina, Melissa, Morgana and Almirena. Sandrine Piau reflects their complaints and despair with beauty. © François Hudry/Qobuz

Radu Lupu: an Understated Genius

Radu Lupu was a poet, magician and pianist who pursued the indescribable. The Romanian artist’s musical approach was brought to life by his tormented and fiercely introverted personality, which was always shrouded in mystery. When sat at his piano, he would knead the keys like dough, seeking a powerful, consistent sound. Radu Lupu passed away on the 17th of April 2022, leaving behind a relatively small, yet incredibly valuable, discographic legacy.

Undervalued: a Look Back on Female Composers

From Sappho of Mytilene to Kaija Saariaho and Clara Schumann, several women have managed to break through the macho codes of the milieu and become composers. While the classical music landscape has been largely dominated by men in recent centuries, the work of their female colleagues, whether pioneers or contemporaries, is just as fascinating. Here we put eleven undervalued figures of female composition in the spotlight.

Scriabin's Flamboyant Raptures

Somewhat overshadowed today by his compatriots Rimsky-Korsakov, Stravinsky and Rachmaninov, Alexander Scriabin is nonetheless a key figure in Russian music. At the beginning of the 20th century, the composer and virtuoso pianist broke away from the Romantic legacy to offer a unique and innovative musical language which no one would follow. His work, deeply influenced by mystical philosophy and synaesthesia, would undergo a dazzling evolution in barely two decades, interrupted by his premature death at the age of 43.
